Basil finds himself in a strange new pot and meets our other chatty little plants. They think they know some stuff, but when it comes to animals, they know nothing. One wild assumption followed by another gets them into big trouble. Next time they may not be so lucky!

This illustrated story is for bilingual children and Portuguese language students with a basic or intermediate knowledge who want to study a dual language text in English and Portuguese. For ease of understanding, the languages are displayed together mostly one or two sentences at a time. The aim was to make translation as direct as possible but always using everyday language of native speakers. Reading this entertaining dual language book will help you develop your knowledge of the Portuguese language. We hope you enjoy the story.

About the author

Colin Hann and Pedro Páramo are friends and partners in the LingoLibros adventure. Lingolibros is a young and developing company. Our aim is to produce quality bilingual books with an easy to follow parallel text, at an affordable price. We believe that they will be of particular benefit to couples with bilingual children who hope to develop their child's understanding of their native tongues. Our books are, so far, short stories with amusing illustrations suitable for reading aloud to young children in a single language or in a combination of two languages. Older children can enjoy reading these stories by themselves to learn and practice their second language. Students with a basic or intermediate knowledge of a foreign language will find these books very helpful in developing their vocabulary and understanding of the
second language. We hope you benefit from and enjoy reading these bilingual tales.

 This book is a compilation of texts, exercises, and a vast amount resources as used in the best universities to teach Portuguese to Foreigners. It includes the most effective methods to learn the Portuguese Language, either alone or with the help of a partner. It’s also an excellent manual to help Portuguese Language Teachers and Lecturers in the Classroom.

This book is based on an extensive experience teaching Portuguese to foreign students, creating the first Portuguese Departments for several Chinese Universities, and most importantly, based on the insights acquired through cooperations with the Universities of Guangdong, Harbin, Jilin and Shanghai, in China.

During these years, the author researched everything that exists in the market to teach the Portuguese Language, and that’s why he knows that you won’t ever find a manual for the teaching of the Portuguese Language that can guarantee you faster and better results, but also more motivating and interesting than what is presented here.

Moreover, during his experience as a lecturer, the author was considered one of the most efficient Language Teachers in China, recommended by the Portuguese Embassy as one of their best lecturers ever, and his students were known for winning multiple national awards related to speech, translation, interpretation and writing competitions, and also known for being the fastest at language learning. Many of them became fluent Portuguese speakers in just one month.

Today, these formers students are managers, entrepreneurs, translators, interpreters, and employees of some of the best and most popular companies around the world, including futebol teams, and in countries as diversified as Brazil, Portugal, Angola, Mozambique, Spain, Saudi Arabia, China, England and the USA, among  many others.
